The real car is so similar to the concept it will even feature 18" alloy wheels. Therefore, we can expect its technical specs to be also the same. Powered by a turbocharged 2-litre petrol engine, the TFSI 2.0, the car counts on 210 bhp to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.2 s and to reach a top speed of 238 km/h. Even being so powerful, the car is able to reach a fuel consumption of 16 km/l and to emit less carbon than the previous version of GTI: 178 g/km against 189 g/km.
Besides the engine changes, the new car will also have the Adaptive Chassis Control (ACC), with adjustable shock absorbers and three levels: Comfort, Normal and Sport. These adjustment levels also influence the steering of the car. The new Golf GTI will also feature a new electronically controlled limited slip differential, called XDS, which is mated to a new stability control. Seven airbags are also in the package, as well as digital air-conditioning and a special sound system. The car is expected to go to dealers soon after its official presentation in Geneva.
